Any liner that accepts a 10 mm pin works well with our Air-Locks and Easy Off locks 6 mm pins are also available. Patient and practitioner preference on liner type and brand.

Fabric or non-fabric backed liners both work well.

 

Can you use vacuum?

NO. Our only lock that can be used with vacuum is the CD117.
